About me

Are things difficult in your life right now? Do you want to make changes? Do you need a space to talk about what is troubling you? You don't need to face this alone.

I understand that you may be experiencing a challenging time in your life, be in a time of crisis or or feeling overwhelmed by your emotions.

I can help you find a path through the difficulties you are facing.  I offer a confidential space where you will be heard, accepted and respected. I hope you will feel safe and able to talk about what is happening in your life and that counselling will support  you and open a path to greater self understanding and awareness.

I will listen carefully to why you have come to seek help. We will explore together your reasons for coming to therapy and how we may be able to find a way forward together.

Areas of support include loss and bereavement, unhappy or overwhelmed  emotionally stuck, anxiety, fear, stress, suicide, career changes, self confidence and health.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
